NED XI vs AUT Dream11 team tips for European Cricket Championship 2021
Top tip: Best batsman
Austria captain Razmal Shigiwal should find a place in your team. The 22-year-old top-order batsman was in devastating form in his last outing, scoring 96 runs from just 28 balls. His innings included five boundaries and a whopping 11 sixes. Judging by the form he is in, fantasy managers can consider making him their captain as well.
Top tip: Best bowler
While Austria have been brilliant with the bat, Netherlands XI have been bowling exceptionally well. Their 27-year-old bowler Julian De Mey was fantastic against Romania last time out as he picked two wickets for just eight runs in his two overs. He is a smart bowling option to have in your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Netherlands XI’s Clayton Floyd didn’t get to bat in the previous game, so he let his bowling do the talking. The all-rounder, who has been in excellent form in recent times, picked three important wickets for 10 runs against Romania and can prove to be a potent weapon for fantasy players.
None of the wicket-keepers had an opportunity to bat in their previous matches, so gloveman Abrar Bilal of Austria becomes the safest option considering his decent recent returns.
NED XI vs AUT probable playing XI
NED XI playing XI (probable): Musa Ahmad, Boris Gorlee, Victor Lubbers, Navjeet Singh, Sebastian Braat (captain), Vivian Kingma, Asad Zulfiqar (wicket-keeper), Ryan Klein, Julian De Mey, Niels Etman, Clayton Floyd
